“The whole experience has been enlightening and empowering. As Dairy Farmers taking on the food industry we have certainly made some mistakes due to lack of business knowledge. I feel like [the Agribusiness Growth Program] is giving us a different direction and a manageable ‘to do’ list. Our evaluator has been wonderful, his meticulous research and willingness to better understand our industry gives us a great sense of comfort that this evaluation will point us in a positive direction.”

“We found the Agribusiness Growth program really helpful in having someone visit and get to know our company from outside and who could look at our strategic opportunities in a different way. We knew we could improve our business and have had a clear goal for our growth. But because we are dealing at an operational level everyday it has been difficult to put in place the steps to achieve our vision. We now realise what we need to do. We are excited about the future and the next stage of program funding will help us get there. Thanks Food South Australia for your support and assistance.”
